I encountered this on the powerprep.
If set S consists of the numbers 1,5,-2,8 and n, is 0 < n < 7?
(1) The median of the numbers in S is less than 5
(2) The median of the numbers in S is greater than 5
The software says the correct answer is C. I thought it would be A. I can't figure out why we need (2) to determine the answer.
stmt 2 doesn't sound right. Are you sure it's accurate.
If the series is 1,5,2,-8,n whatever n value might be median can't be greater than 5.
Since there are 5 elements the 3rd element in the ascending order should be the median.
If n <1 median =1
If 1<n<5 median =n
If n>5 median =5
